Hannah Goslar, Anne Franks friend and Holocaust survivor, dies aged 93

Hannah Goslar, one of Anne Frank's best friends who like her was held in the Bergen-Belsen Nazi concentration camp during the second world war, has died aged 93.

Frank, a young Jewish girl who died aged 15 in the Bergen-Belsen camp, is known worldwide for her powerful diary written between 1942 and 1944.

Goslar was born in 1928. Her family fled Nazi Germany in 1933 and settled in Amsterdam, where she met Frank at school.

The two girls lost touch in 1942 when the Frank family went into hiding to escape the Nazis.

Goslar and her family were arrested by the Gestapo in 1943 and deported to Bergen-Belsen the following year.

There, she met Frank again in February 1945, just before her friend's death.

Goslar and her sister Gabi were the only members of their family to survive.
